Sinead O'Connor Splits From Husband Barry Herridge For Second Time

Sinead O'Connor has split from her husband for the second time.

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer married drug counsellor Barry Herridge in Las Vegas on December 8 but split after 16 days when it was revealed she went hunting for drugs on their wedding night.

The couple reconciled just days later following a night of passion but have now split again with Sinead blaming the Irish media for causing trouble in the relationship.

In a statement on her website, the star said: "His association with me became something very bad for his life. And slowly since we were married I became very ill as result of what was done to my husband and i was unable to cope. And became depressed."

Sinead recently made two suicide bids when she overdosed on pills in Los Angeles last Thursday and again this week after receiving treatment for a broken ankle in an Irish hospital.

Whilst staying in Dublin this week, Sinead made a desperate plea for help on Twitter after struggling to find psychiatric help in the city.

She wrote: "I realise I will be in trouble 4 doing this but.. Ireland is a VERY hard place to find help in. So having tried other ways 1st I'm asking does any1 know a psychiatrist in Dublin or Wicklow who could urgently see me today please?

"I'm really un-well... and in danger."

The star has since blamed the Irish media for causing further tension in her marriage.

In her statement, she said: "The behaviour of one particular paper resulted in very serious damage to my husband and myself personally and consequently made the marriage untenable so that it is now over and I hope the media will kindly leave the poor man alone to get on with his life."

The star, 45, who has been married twice before says that she will not get romantically involved with anyone in the future.

She said: "I will never again associate myself romantically with anyone as I could not bear to see these things done again to someone I love.

"I'm gonna be me. And if anyone doesn't like that they can seek therapy. Because I am wonderful. Exactly as I am. As Bridget Jones would say. And I shall continue being me. If being me means certain Irish media will try to destroy my romantic life... So be it..."
